In order to upgrade the VMware Horizon View GPO’s, I login into one of my Active Directory servers. I copy the VMware-Horizon-Extras-Bundle-5.4.0-15805437 file to a temp-folder and extract it.

I first copy and replace all the admx-files to my Central Store location, in my LAB this will be: “C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\ad.admin.frelab.net\Policies\PolicyDefinitions”
